Interruptible Transportation Service







(a) In accordance with the further provisions of this Rate Schedule, Operator shall

receive scheduled quantities of Natural Gas from or on behalf of Buyer at Buyer's

Receipt Points and shall deliver thermally equivalent scheduled quantities, less

quantities for Operator's fuel use, losses and unaccounted purposes (herein referred

to as "Retainage"), to or for Buyer at Buyer's Delivery Points. Service provided

under this Rate Schedule shall be subject to interruption at any time or as required

to provide service to customers under any firm rate schedule.


(b) Operator's maximum obligation to receive Natural Gas for transportation service on

any date for Buyer shall be limited to the lesser of (i) Buyer's ITQ plus Retainage,

or (ii) Buyer's Scheduled Daily Receipt Quantity. Operator's maximum obligation to

deliver Natural Gas on any day for Buyer under this Rate Schedule shall be the lesser

of (i) Buyer's ITQ, or (ii) Buyer's Scheduled Daily Delivery Quantity, or (iii) the

quantity of Natural Gas Operator receives for Buyer less Retainage.


(c) Buyer shall not be permitted to increase its existing flowing quantities under this

Rate Schedule, regardless of the Transportation Quantity set forth in Buyer's ITS

Service Agreement, if such increase would cause a reduction of existing quantities

flowing on Operator's system under any other Service Agreement of equal or higher

priority. For purposes of making this determination with regard to requests for

increased flowing quantities as of the first Day of a Month, the existing quantities

flowing on Operator's system shall be deemed to be those quantities flowing on the

fifth business day preceding the first Day of that Month. A scheduled temporary

reduction in the quantities being transported, if requested by Buyer and approved by

Operator, shall not reduce the level of Buyer's existing quantities flowing on

Operator's system for purposes of this paragraph.


(d) Service rights under an ITS Service Agreement may not be released and assigned.
